PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: In terms of my own job, I'm energized. I'm excited about the prospects for the next couple of years. And I'm certainly not going to be stopping for a minute in the effort to make life better for ordinary Americans. Because thanks to their efforts, we really do have a new foundation that's been laid. We are better positioned than we have been in a very long time. A new future is ready to be written. We've set the stage for -- for this American moment. And I'm going to spend every minute of my last two years making sure that we seize it.
My presidency is entering the fourth quarter. Interesting stuff happens in the fourth quarter. and I'm looking forward to it. But going into the fourth quarter you usually get a time-out. I'm looking forward toy a quiet time-out, Christmas with my family. So I want to wish everyone a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year.
